    Rare WW1 French Navy Deck Charge, Ready to Use Copper Carrying Case. O 1605 - O 1605

    This is a very rare WW1 French navy deck charge copper carrying case used to contain ready to use bagged charges kept next to the gun during the First World War. The case would hold cordite bagged charges which were very dangerous to store on deck, especially in action and were used to bring bagged charges from the magazine to the deck. This case is very heavy and consists of copper sides, top and base, riveted together with heavy rivets with a quick release round access hatch to the top with a turn lock handle on it. The handle has a brass pin attached by a chain to secure the handle when locked. The case was heavily soldered at all seams after it was riveted to make it water and spark proof. There are two swivelling brass carrying handles to the top of the case. The carrier measures 26 inches x 17 ½ inches x 14 inches. The French Adrian helmet on top of the cordite carrier is to give a feeling of size and is not included in the sale. Due to the weight and size of this item, delivery will be by arrangement and at cost. O 1605
